Weasel Books Are hymns also folk music hmmmmm? (41) RE: Are hymns also folk music hmmmmm? 31 Jan 05

Several of our (LDS) hymns have folk tunes.
I think some hymns could definitely qualify, especialy Gospel and Spiritual.
The rule about the known author is rather silly. No song just forms itself out of the air in the minds of several people. There is always someone who comes up with it first.
Isn't early Rock 'n' Roll a form of Folk Music?
